1:38:04 – Before he defected to WOR in the Big Apple, Jean Shepherd worked at several other radio stations, four of which (WSAI, WCKY, WKRC, WLW) were in the Cincinnati area. During one of these brief bouts of employment, Shep spent a summer in Covington, Kentucky. Dave in Kentucky introduces and comments on four show segments in which Shep in New York talks about Shep in Kentucky. While staying mostly out of the master storyteller’s way, Dave does manage to sneak in one of his own stories near the end. (Show art: WKRC promotional photo, circa 1948.)
